I'm fearing that I will have seen more snow in Africa than I do here this entire winter....they're saying maybe flurries by Friday but the temperatures just don't have me convinced. Last winter was rather pathetic without a single heap, and I just don't know how I'll be able to handle it again. Snow can do wonders for my spirit - a freshness and renewing.
I've never really understood the people who want to go somewhere tropical and warm for Christmas. It just doesn't seem to fit. I can't drink hot chocolate and hang ornaments and make Christmas cookies when its 65+ degrees outside. Without winter nothing would seem to move, nothing would seem new. And that's the marking on this time of year. Starting again.
